199w ago - Sony's Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell has shared some pictures and recap videos from the recent Heavy Rain PlayStation 3 Paris launch party today.
To quote: As you already know, Heavy Rain drops this Tuesday, and that means this weekend's wait will most likely seem undoubtedly long.
To help ease the pain, PlayStation.Blog.Europe's Jem Alexander comes bearing gifts: videos, pictures and a first-hand account of this week's Parisian activities. Take it away, Jem!
I hope you're ready for lots of Heavy Rain content, because while we were at the big Launch Party in Paris this week we managed to secure a nice amount of interview and video content which should tide you over until well after the game comes out next week.
To kick things off we've got a short teaser video and some photos which should give you an idea of what the launch event was like. I would've loved for you all to have been there with us, but hopefully this is the next best thing.
The event took place at the Gaumont Cinema on the Champs Elysees in Paris, where David Cage (Writer/Director), Guillaume de Fondaumiere (Executive Producer), Pascal Langdale (Actor - Ethan Mars),...

Additionally, NBA Live 10 and Madden NFL 10 game launch functionality is being added to PlayStation Home.
You're a hardcore sports fan that spends all of his or her spare time either sitting in front of the tube watching the game or (better yet) sitting behind your DualShock controller and playing the game.
And the only thing better than being at home with an ice-cold beverage cracked, watching your favorite team with old friends is being IN PlayStation Home finding new friends to launch into Madden NFL 10 or NBA Live 10. And that, my fellow ballers and leatherheads, is why PlayStation Home is THE place to be this week.
Continuing to come strong with the sports content, EA is bringing a boatload of football and basketball items to the PlayStation Home community...

303w ago - A material that is able to self-repair even when it is sliced in two has been invented by French researchers.
The as-yet-unnamed material - a form of artificial rubber - is made from vegetable oil and a component of urine.
The substance, described in the journal Nature, produces surfaces when cut that retain a strong chemical attraction to each other.
Pieces of the material join together again as if never parted without the need for glue or a special treatment.
This remarkable property comes from careful engineering of the molecules in the material.
The French researchers are already making kilogramme quantities in their Paris laboratories and say the process is almost completely green, and could be completely so with a few adjustments.
The secret of the substance lies in how the molecules are held together.
A piece of normal rubber, says Dr Ludwik Leibler, who headed the research, is actually a single molecule with billion upon billions of smaller units chemically welded together to form a giant tangled network.
The elasticity comes from the fact that the strands within the network are buckled like a concertina: pull on them and they straighten and elongate; let go and the buckles reappear.
